On a side note - can you let me know what type of heated ring you use?[/QUOTE]

Very nice job!

A 6" plastic ball works for free and well until it gets really cold.

Since I'm sure it does in your area. I use this when I absolutely have to http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/stor...icer-1250-watt and no exposed elements. Fortunately I never have to use for more than a few days at a time. There may be less consumptive options.

Temperature / location plays a big part. All you need is to keep an air hole open. As Colby stated the ball method works for him, I tried it and doesn't work effectively for me.

You may need to put in a liner or a waterproof bottom to keep from losing the water into the ground and having to replenish (metered) from the tap.
Stick to your lawn watering schedule until it really starts to pour. After the storm you have only the same number of rest days you always had and then you need to start watering again.
